In the last few years, China has experienced a think-tank boom in response to the government’s call for "new types of think tanks with Chinese characteristics." What exactly are these Chinese characteristics? How do Chinese think tanks compare with familiar models of think tanks in Western countries such as the United States and Canada? How do these Chinese characteristics affect the ability of Chinese think tanks to fulfill the mission set for them by China’s leaders? These are the questions explored in this paper.
